I was introduced to reading at a young age. My mother was determined that I become literate quickly and would read to me often, so much so that I memorized an entire 60-page book (there were lots of pictures). My grandmother, though, takes credit for my addiction to reading. She was a librarian and introduced me to the joy that is reading. It is no coincidence my first World of Myth novel is dedicated to her.

My journey from avid reader to aspiring author took its first turn in High School after I read Dune by Frank Herbert. It was a great challenge for me at the age of 14, but I was so impressed with it that I began to imagine my own stories. What I wish to accomplish as an author is to do for my readers what I want other authors to do for

The Forever War The Forever War by Joe Haldeman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I hovered between 4 and 5 stars here, but I went with 5 because I really did find this book very interesting. Not gripping or particularly exciting, but certainly interesting and thought-provoking. Considering this was the goal of the book, to get you thinking, I decided to go with 5 stars.

So anyway, in case you didn't know, The Forever... Read more of this blog post »
